AT SAINT LAURENT RIVE DROITE

rd-event-223

ANTHONY VACCARELLO INVITES BEIJING PHOTOGRAPHER LIN ZHIPENG ALIAS NO.223 FOR A UNIQUE EXHIBITION IN THE SAINT LAURENT RIVE DROITE STORES IN PARIS AND LOS ANGELES.

NAMED "NO. 223" AFTER THE POLICE CHARACTER IN WONG KAR-WAI'S CHUNGKING EXPRESS, LIN ZHIPENG ALSO EMBRACES THE HONG KONG DIRECTOR'S POETIC AND DREAMY ATMOSPHERE AS WELL AS THE SOLITUDE AND MYSTERY OF MANY OF HIS CHARACTERS.

NO. 223 OFFERS HIS PERSPECTIVE ON AN ALTERNATIVE SPIRIT AND YOUTH CULTURE IN AN OFTEN-CONSERVATIVE CHINESE CULTURAL CONTEXT. HIS SPONTANEOUS PHOTOGRAPHS DEPICT A YOUNG GENERATION INDULGING IN LOVE AND LIFE, OSCILLATING BETWEEN JUBILATION AND DEEP MELANCHOLY.

IN THE EXHIBITION, A SELECTION OF ARTWORKS WILL BE FOR SALE.

TO MARK THE OCCASION A NEW FANZINE IS AVAILABLE IN STORES.
